I've only tried attaching a pic to a post and where is the rich formatting? I've got the directions that you gave me last time but, still having difficulty uploading. I'm frustrated.,

Well - It took a couple of tries, but I figured it out.  1) DO NOT USE "Quick Reply" - use the "Reply" button.  2) At the select the "Insert" drop-down menu.  Select "Image" and then under "Source" put in the URL of your photo just like the old system.  The tricky part is getting to add your text.  It isn't very intuitive and was a bit balky before it worked.

I apologize for not answering sooner, but I wasn't monitoring regularly the past couple of days.

To keep everyone from going to your Facebook page, try storing your astro pics on another site.  I use "Photobucket" myself.  Others use Flickr or Astrobin.  I'm sure there are more sites also.

Thank you for checking that out Poppa Chris. I haven't included any photos in my posts since the change, but your guide is going to be very useful.
